problems at boot with X server
Hi all, I'm new to the whole Linux experience.
Here's the problem I am having, after install on the first boot, I get this message" I cannot start the X server(your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem?"
At that point I am lost, no matter what , the PC either reboots or will take me to the localhost login. I don't know how to login. I have a root password set up during install, but dont know what the actual login name is? Is it just "root"
Even if I did get to view the X server output that it states I am sure I wouldn't have a clue what to do!!
I am trying to use Fedora 1. No dual boot or the like. Sony Vaio, bout 4 years old. 256MB ram, 20 Gb HD, 32MB Nvidia TNT video card( which has posed problems for me before in Windows).
Could someone please help me out? I'm lost.
